§ 42. Mr. HARRISON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will discontinue the special rate at present in force for Press telegrams?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The existing rates can only be altered by legislation, which I am not at present prepared to introduce.
§ Mr. GROTRIAN
Is it not a fact that these rates are charged under a properly constituted agreement between the parties. Is there any reason for treating it as a scrap of paper?
